By Aaron Humes: Ten-month-old Sara Sawatzky of Camp 114, Neuland, Corozal District, suffered massive burns leading to death after an explosion and fire at the family home Tuesday night.

According to Police, Sara’s sister, 15-year-old Helena Sawatzky, was assisting their mother Helena to light a kerosene lamp when it apparently exploded and caught fire.

All members of the family suffered burn injuries but three-year-old Ana Sawatzky was rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital in Belize City where she currently remains in critical condition. Other family members including father Heinrich Sawatzky were treated at Orange Walk’s Northern Regional Hospital. A neighbour helped put out the fire.

The body of Sara Sawatzky now lies at the Northern Regional Hospital Morgue awaiting a post-mortem examination as police investigation continues.
